Drug Development Core


The Drug Development Core brings together the expertise of Roswell Park Cancer Institute and the UB School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences to provide a resource (including training) in preclinical and early clinical development of novel compounds for investigators.

We provide a centralized resource for preclinical pharmacology, pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamics and early phase clinical trial design, conduct and management.
